We’ve had a very relaxing day, doing nothing but sunbathing, reading and eating…lots of eating! The food here is amazing! Well, perhaps not amazing, but when you haven’t had chicken and chips for a while it tastes delicious, I can tell you!

Today’s the day…we did nothing!

We’ve really being enjoying waking up early to make the most of the daylight as it get’s dark very early here. It’s so relaxing to sit on the veranda enjoying a cup of coffee first thing.

Coffee on the veranda every morning.
The veranda is a lovely place to chill out.
This morning, sitting right there, I did a little more of the drawing I started yesterday. As you can see, it still has a way to go. I think the pace of life here has slowed me right down, I seem to be even less productive with loads of time on my hands!

While we were eating lunch this little fellow was hanging around. It was his lucky day today, someone fed him a juicy bit of chicken which was left on their plate.

The Every Day in May challenge today was to draw something from a pet’s point of view. I thought it would be funny to imagine if I were a cat being picked up by a person. Sam was my willing (?) model for the face! 

Here, kitty kitty!

I drew this pen for the 10 Minute Warm-Up feature on Diana Evan’s blog. It was a very cheap purchase in a £1 shop but it’s been a trusty friend while we’ve been away so I thought it deserved a sketch!

Here are the lovely link up parties I linked to yesterday – Creating Really Awesome Free Things, Balzer Designs, Cornerstone Confessions and Diana Evans Illustration and Design.
